    Hey guys and gals,

    Just got off the phone with Russ, He is going to be off the boards for awhile as he will be making an emergency cross country trip, so he won't be accessible and duly noted.

    I'm asking that you keep his family in your thoughts and prayers for safety and comfort as they need all they can get right now from the OB family.

    Russ, know that you, Michelle, Jessi, are on my mind all the time. I've wanted to call you, but hesitated disturbing you. I catch you, more probably Michelle, on FaceBook frequently, but it's not the same. Now that this ice is broken, I'll call tomorrow.

    The focus right now is managing the pain to make her comfortable. There is no more plans for chemo treatments. Her doctor is in hospital today and trying to come by here so I can get an update.
    They're talkin hospice so time is limited.


    By the way it's very cold in Oshkosh. I brought the wrong clothes.

    Your news is not good, Russ. It's very unwelcome, not what I wanted to hear. I was truly hoping for something better.

    I'll be calling you Monday, when I'm back home. If you want to talk before that get ahold of me online and I'll call on my daughter's VOIP line, or we can do a FB call.

    You made good time cross-country. That's a 2000 mile trip. Your mind was elsewhere when you left so it's no surprise you packed the wrong cloths.

    Take care of yourself and Michelle as well as Jessi. The two of you aren't going to do any good for anyone if you're too exhausted.
